I know I said this last year, and I probably said it the year before, but I don’t think I’m going to do NaBloPoMo again next year. I’ve managed to get through it for two years, and I will again this year, but it’s definitely a stretch. And this year especially I feel like it’s cutting into time that could be better spent doing other things. Namely work. I work pretty short days so I can pick the kids up at a decent hour and not have to race to get dinner on the table. This means I have to work at least three evenings a week. And if I add a daily blog post to the mix (which takes me anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour), it just makes me feel too stretched. And the posts aren’t fun.
On the other hand, I do love clicking that NaBloPoMo tag and seeing so many posts. And I love re-reading them, even the lame ones. So I want to do something to continue blogging regularly. Just not every day. Not even close. Instead what I’d like to try to do is keep track of a pool of blog post ideas that I want to write about, and set aside a couple of hours every two weeks to actually produce something regularly, if not very frequently. I’m kind of doing that on Awesome Mommies, but those posts are all parenting related. And, believe it or not, I have more to say!
And I’ll be taking December off…unless the mood strikes.
